Indians form a large part of the population in the UAE. With increasing opportunities in petroleum, construction, banking and IT sectors there has been an exponential increase in these numbers over the past few years. While most Indian migrants are a part of the manufacturing and transport industries, a sizeable number also form a part of the professional services sector. With a proven track record of the Indian success story in the UAE, an education in the region will help you break into the job market in a city in the UAE or even back home.
The proximity to home makes Dubai a very lucrative study destination to consider. The multicultural environment with an increased influx of foreigners will give you the international exposure that is a very integral part of any international education experience. There is a strong presence of campuses of international universities in Dubai which makes it attractive for students looking to study in a global environment.
Current labor laws in Dubai do not allow the student to work part time.

Please note that the employer sponsored visas are not applicable to part time work.
